Sarcan’s Guide to Revival 

Housing and Upgrade Kits

These guides were originally posted on the forums Houses and upgrades

This guide is designed to help you decide how to invest in housing for the upcoming game Revival. They are currently fundraising by selling you a Property via their store. However it is challenging to decide what to buy until you get use to navigating the different options.

Options

1. Select a Server – You have to decide what server you will reside on, Gold servers are subscription servers, regular servers are Free to Play. You can own homes on Multiple servers, but each need to be purchased separately.

2. Neighborhood – This option allows you to filter the still available properties to a particular neighbor based on the next filter, type of home.

Note: The is a really well done post about neighborhood description by Sanderval. As an RPG, neighborhoods are important as they play into how safe, what businesses and the ambiance

3. Filters – Filters allows you to browse the properties by type (Tenements, Cottages, Houses, Manses, Estates)

Tenements are apartment style rooms

 Cottages are small open floor plan dwellings

Houses are medium multi-room floor pan dwellings

Manses are large homes that can also be upgrade to stores and crafting structures.

Estates are massive homes

4. Available Homes – Now that you have filters, you can browse the available properties on the right on directly on the map. You will see price, location and size. To see more about the property hit the diamond on the map or More Info where you can view the pictures and read the full structure, neighborhood and features description. This is also where you can add the property to your cart to purchase it.

5. Cart – Once you go to your cart, you now have more options available, Property Upgrades which are availble to every housing type ( Furnishings Package and Upgrade Package) and Room Upgrades which are packages based on the type of upgrade room that comes with your house.

See the end of the guide for those options

This guide is designed to allow you to see the pictures and full structure and features description and upgrades you can choose from BEFORE you browse the store.

Housing FAQ

Q: Can we purchase the upgrade kits separately, not just during the process of buying a home?

A: In the future yes, the UI is still being developed to support this.

Q: Can we manage our kits if we change our minds after purchasing them?

A: In the near future you will be upgrade, change and purchase additional kits as the store functionality is implemented.

Q: What sets a Cottage apart from a Tenement?

A: Size, smallest Cottage is larger than the largest Tenement; Privacy, tenements are clustered, Cottages are standalone; Location, Cottages tend to be in better neighborhoods, even outside the walls; Space, Cottages have the potential for lawns or outside space.

Q: Are we able to purchase more than predefined kits?

A: Yes you will be able to buy individual pieces of furniture and crafting stations to allow you to customize your dwellings. Don’t have a fireplace, purchase a brazier for example.

Q: Can any dwelling be turned into a crafting shop?

A: Yes but within reason, you have to have the space for the crafting tools needed to conduct your trade. Want to be a tailor, get a spinning wheel and set up shop. Want to be a blacksmith, well you need a forge and those won’t fit in a Tenement and potentially not a Cottage so some planning ahead is required.

Q: Can we own more than one Home?

A: Yes, you can own as many as you wish to pay for, keep in mind you will have to maintain upkeep on them all.

Q: If I purchase a home on a server, can I move it to another server if I decide to play there instead.

A: No, homes are locked to the server, you would need to purchase a new home on the other server. You can own homes on multiple servers, so this isn’t an issue.

Q: Can I my home for gold?

A: There is no plans currently to allow you to sell a home purchased with real money for Gold.

Q: Can I rent my home for gold?

A: You can rent your home to someone via the permissions system in managing your property.

Q: If I rent a property and the landlord kicks me out, do I loose my stuff?

A: No, upon loosing access to a property, you items are packed up and sent to a caravan house where you can later claim them.

Q: Is buying and selling of homes a viable profession in Revival?

A: Possibly but you have to keep in mind there are systems that will make you have to be very diligent. There are taxes to pay, with consequences for not paying them for example. Real Estate will have value but necessarily stable in either direction.

Q: If I purchase additional an additional house, do i get a discount?

A: In the future yes, once the store system fully supports it, but only on your second home. If you don’t want to wait till the discount system is working you will be paying fully price for the second home and there will not be a refund for the difference.

Q: Where there be upgrades for the outside of homes?

A: Yes at some point, whether they individual or neighborhood upgrades, say a stable that is yours or shared.

Q: Can I be a farmer, having land and animals to tend?

A: Outside the city are cottages that have attached farmland. North Gate, South Gate and West Gate Farms.

Q: Can my home be robbed?

A: Thievery is allowed, so be sure to protect and or insure your property, this may include what you may store in a bank. Nothing is completely safe from theft or destruction, it is a dark world after all.

Q: Can I tell where in a neighborhood my home is?

A: Not really, there were no city planners, houses were numbered as they were built in that neighborhood. There is functionality to the map system coming that will help you find your home.

Q: As new locations open up will I be able to pull up shop and move?

A: Systems are being worked on to allow you to move. This would require you to sell or rent your home out and purchasing a new one in the new location. How all those systems will work is still in development.
